Thank you COMEX for bringing us this legendary dive watch
COMEX (an abbreviation of the french Compagnie Maritime d’Expertises) was a company specialising in deep diving engineering and operations. In 1967 in collaboration with COMEX – Rolex produced their first Sea-Dweller with helium escape valve. It was only in 1971 that this slayer of the deep was offered to the general public.
The Rolex Sea-Dweller was initially certified to a depth of 610m. Quite remarkably, today’s models have a waterproof rating of 1,220m (4,000ft) and 3,900m (12,800ft) – the latter being the Rolex Sea-Dweller Deepsea made famous by James Cameron.
Rolex Deepsea and Rolex Red – two of the most popular Sea-Dweller models
James Cameron, the mogul movie director, bravely took the Rolex to world record depths in his one man Deepsea Challenger submarine. Amazingly they descended to a body crushing depth of 6.8 miles. Needkess to say, the Rolex survived and a legend was born – the Rolex Deepsa. It’s a stunning watch with a deep and alluring blue to black dial. Therefore, it’s this model, the Rolex 116660 Cameron Deepsea and the single Red 126600 that most watch collectors are looking out for. However, all models are getting hard to find in full set condition with box and papers of authenticity. More information here > Rolex Sea-Dweller history & information
